I did my postgrad in the UK, which is when I finally started drinking tea. And now I'm hooked.

waves  Morning Nico! That's ok, I live in the southern US and rarely if ever drink sweet iced tea. I probably get a similar reaction from my family and friends.

Bonjour Azyriel! Good to see you again!

Admitted, I will drink tea - when I am sick, mostly. Ginger/Lemon. And sometimes iced tea, but that's that.

That's probably my biggest culture shock in the States. The rest of the world tends to think of "iced tea" as sweet, unless specified as unsweetened. Any time I'm in the US, I'll invariably make that mistake at least once.

The US is synonymous with sugar consumption. How could you ever make that mistake? My friend from the UK almost went into a diabetic coma just walking through the cereal isle in our supermarket!

Iced Tea can be a lot here. ~nodnod~ We have sweet brands, unsweetened ones. All kinds of flavour, too. Some even are with bubbles.

I know! Which is why I'm always confused that "iced tea" is unsweetened, and you have to specifically request the unhealthy version.

Oh, you must not have been in Texas. Iced tea is sweet here unless specified otherwise, hence my mistake. lol

Oh, huh. Well, then you're like the rest of the world in that regard.

Except the netherlands. The definitely had carbonated iced tea, and it completely blew my mind.

I always have my tea unsweetened. I like tasting the different flavors/essence of the tea leaves. Sugar masks that.

True! Though, my vanilla addiction requires it in everything possible. <3 Resistance is futile.

Offers blanktes No need to steal, I love to share! Concurrently rereading both the Dresden Files series and the Collars and Cuffs series. Just depends on where I'm sitting usually.  >:)

Also... I likes to steal *pout*
